"Yunomi"

Party for art at the next University of Iowa Museum of Art (UIMA) First Friday reception at FilmScene! UIMA First Fridays provide an ideal chance to usher in your weekend, enjoy the work of local artists, and mingle with other art-enthusiasts.

This month we are featuring a collection of yunomi by 24 artists, illustrating various firing methods, techniques and decorations. A yunomi is a form of Japanese teacup, typically made from a ceramic material, being taller than wide, with a trimmed or turned foot. Unlike the more formal chawan tea bowl which is used during the Japanese tea ceremony, the yunomi is made for daily (or informal) tea drinking. Featured artists include Michael Simon, Ron Meyers, Akio Takamori, Warren Mackenzie, Kurt Weiser, Jeff Oestreich, and Randy Johnston.

First Fridays are free and open to the public with complimentary popcorn and a cash bar.

Consider becoming a UIMA member! Courtesies include home delivery of the UIMA Magazine and a personalized Membership Card, which entitles you to free entry to the Figge Art Museum and reciprocal admission to other art museums around the country.

First Fridays for the 2017-2018 season are generously sponsored by John S. & Patricia C. Koza, H. Dee & Myrene R. Hoover and John R. Menninger.
